Aston Martin Launches DBR1 Spec for V12 Speedster

Classic green and white for V12

  • Paint and trim to look like Aston’s most successful racer

  • Just 88 total Speedsters to be built


Thinking about putting down your payment for one of the 88 V12 Speedsters Aston Martin is planning to build? Well, they’ve just made your choice a little bit tougher thanks to a new historic spec that is meant to be an even closer tribute to the 1959 Le Mans Winning DBR1.

The DBR1, which debuted in 1956, remains Aston’s most successful racing model with a host of winds in the late 1950s. Just five were built, with four run by the factory team and one by a privateer.

To celebrate that model, the Aston Martin V12 Speedster will be offered in DBR1 spec that includes a host of details like Aston Martin Racing Green paint with Clubsport White pinstripes and door roundels. A silver anodized grille with white lipstick graphic matching the doors is paired with Conker saddle leather on the inside as well as Viridian Green textile and Caithness leather, all as a nod to the shades used on the original racers.

Powered by a 5.2L twin-turbo V12, the Speedster will make 700 hp and 555 lb-ft. The windshieldless car comes with two helmets with a special storage space in the rear and solid silver wing badges to showcase the vehicle.

Aston has spent more than 50 hours on paintwork alone to create each of these DBR1 spec cars, with deliveries expected to start around the middle of this year. 21-inch satin black centre-lock wheels are also part of the DBR1 version as is satin silver brushed aluminum switchgear.
